Mets' T.J. Rivera: Expects to begin throwing soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (elbow) said last week that he's hopeful to resume throwing later in spring training and gradually progress to hitting after that, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Rivera is still in the process of rehabbing his right elbow after undergoing Tommy John surgery in mid-September, with the Mets projecting him to return at some point in May. The utility infielder is optimistic that he'll be able to beat the team's projected return date, though he acknowledged that he won't be ready to go by Opening Day. With Rivera set to open the season on the disabled list, Jose Reyes and Wilmer Flores look primed to serve as the top backups at multiple infield spots.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Hoping to return before May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (elbow) said Monday that he's hopeful to make a full recovery from Tommy John surgery and rejoin the Mets by May, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Rivera's Sept. 14 surgery will take him out of the running for the wide-open competition for the second-base job during spring training, as he has yet to resume throwing. Rivera is hopeful that he'll be able to play catch once spring training begins, but since he would still have to clear a few more hurdles beyond that before being able to play in games, he's set to open the 2018 campaign on the disabled list. Once healthy, Rivera may have to settle for a utility role if the Mets are satisfied with their everyday options at the four infield and two corner-outfield spots.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Will likely miss months of 2018 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (elbow) may not be back on the field until the middle of the year after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

The Mets hadn't provided a timeline for Rivera's recovery up to this point, but it appears as though he will miss the first couple months of the 2018 season while healing from the surgery, according to general manager Sandy Alderson. The utility man will be reevaluated on a consistent basis once spring training rolls around, so there should be further updates on his status during that time.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera successfully underwent Tommy John surgery Thursday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

Rivera underwent the procedure to help repair a partially torn UCL in his right elbow. While he remains without a recovery timeline, he's expected to be sidelined into the start of next season. The 28-year-old finished his 2017 campaign with a respectable .290/.330/.430 line with five homers in 73 games.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Will undergo Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (elbow) will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery this week, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Tommy John surgery seemed like a distinct outcome for Rivera when he was first diagnosed with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow back in late July, but the utility man first opted to treat the injury through rest and rehab. After a month of rehab, however, it became clear that Rivera wasn't progressing as well as he had hoped, so he'll now elect to go under the knife to remedy the issue. A recovery timeline should be established after the procedure, and while position players don't need as much time to heal up from Tommy John surgery as pitchers do, Rivera will still likely be sidelined for the start of the 2018 campaign.
